Favorite Websites


The Onion

The Onion is always fun to read. They have humorous political and social commentary, and it's good for a laugh or two if I need it.


Buzzfeed is a little bit clunky to look at, but I do love how they organize their content. It allows people to read the content they want to read.


Rattle publishes really great poetry, and they have a great site. You can click a button that will randomly show you a poem, which is always fun if you're looking to discover new things.



Twitter is great because it offers lots of options for networking. I use it to meet new people, connect with friends, read the news, and broaden my perspective on a variety of issues.

Wayback Machine

The Wayback Machine is so much fun to use if you just want to see what the internet used to look like. It's pretty wild to see how all of my favorite sites looked back in the day.


YouTube prioritizes video, and their website is designed accordingly. They make it easy to get the content you want, whether it's educational or just for fun. I've definitely fallen down my share of "YouTube holes."


Facebook can definitely be a problematic website, especially recently, but it's my go-to for connecting with family and friends and staying updated on what's going on in people's lives. I never use Facebook for news, but it's really great for connecting and messaging.


Instagram is usually used as an app, but their website is sleek and easy to navigate as well. I love Instagram because it really prioritizes images and it doesn't clutter up the app or the website space with ads or words.


I used to use Tumblr a lot more than I do now, because it's a great way to follow people who have similar interests to you, create content, gain a following, and make friends.


I've only recently started to use Goodreads, and while I don't love it from a design perspective, because I feel like it can look cluttered and it's not particularly user-friendly, I love it conceptually. It's a place where people can connect with each other in a social-media-style about books, which are something that isn't very easy to translate onto social media.
